Question Help in identifying this tree and wood.

I understand that this woodturning community is very effective at helping one another find answers to their questions.
I recently helped a fellow woodturner harvest some burls from a couple trees in the neighborhood. We have both had our eyes on them for a long time now. We finally took action, and here is the result. I am posting a couple pictures, and requesting your knowledge, and assistance in identification. In advance, thank you for your help!

I dunno, I wasn't with you when you cut it off

Seriously, you'll need to flip it over and take a really good(sharply) focused photo of the bark. A better photo of the wood grain.

Some pictures of the whole tree & a closeup of the leaves would help a lot.
